While Houston’s “stay at home” order is in effect, these long, drawn-out days at home are much more tolerable with a glass (or two) of wine to sip.

Want to relax with a full-bodied Cab Franc or sit back with an aromatic Sancerre? Head to one of these 12 wine bars and restaurants for excellent bottles that will suit a variety of price points and palates.
